White Springtails: The standard springtail for bioactive setups. Breeds very quickly and can be used for feeders for animals that require very small live food.
Springtails are amazing little critters that help solve a lot of problems in bioactive setups and terrariums. In a bioactive setup, the springtails work with the isopods to create the perfect clean up crew – the isopods break down larger waste created by the primary inhabitants, while the springtails eat the mold and fungus that thrives in humid setups. Fungus gnats and most mites that end up in terrariums also feed on mold and fungus, so a healthy springtail population can eventually outcompete the gnats and mites for food and control the populations.
